In-Home Companionship and Care Services
Studies prove that seniors who stay socially engaged enjoy improved quality of life compared to their solitary counterparts. They also have a lower tendency to develop depression and general cognitive decline. Our caregivers provide seniors with conversation, mealtime companionship, and camaraderie during their favorite activities, all from the comfort of home. Our clients’ happiness is our ultimate goal!
Maintaining a nutritious diet impacts overall wellbeing, as well as decreases the likelihood of many common health conditions like heart disease and diabetes. 7 For these reasons, many of our seniors have prescribed meal plans to which they must adhere for health reasons.8 Whether you seek help following a special diet or just want companionship in the kitchen, our caregivers can provide the food prep necessary for wholesome at-home meals. Our clients are welcomed to work alongside the caregiver to nurture conversation and a sense of accomplishment.
Caregivers join seniors for mealtime, taking advantage of the relaxed environment to forge natural friendships. The result? Eating will be both healthy and enjoyable.
Our caregivers can take care of all laundry needs, either in the home or at a nearby laundromat. These services may include washing, drying, ironing, and putting clean laundry away.
Our caregivers are available to provide light housekeeping. Our services include vacuuming, dusting, sweeping, mopping, cleaning bathrooms (sinks, tubs, showers, and toilets), cleaning kitchens (sinks, appliances, counters, and taking out the trash), straightening all rooms, organizing closets and drawers, and cleaning any interior windows reachable without a ladder.
Getting around can be difficult for seniors, especially if they are unable to drive. Our caregivers take care of this problem by running around for you. This can include grocery shopping and other errands, such as stopping at the pharmacy or post office. Your loved ones are welcome to stay home or come along for the ride as a way to stay active.
Although our caregivers cannot administer medications, they can assist in ensuring that clients take their medication as prescribed. Our caregivers can help with opening medication containers, reading labels, and reminding the client when it is time for the next dose.
Comfort Keepers’ goal is to assist our clients with their personal care routines so they can look and feel their best both in and out of the home. Studies show undeniable benefits for seniors’ self-esteem and emotional fitness to have regular hygiene and grooming. We are here to help clients who fear falling while bathing or have limitations that make bath-time difficult. We can assist with shampooing, shaving (with an electric shaver), hair combing and styling, and other grooming needs.
